Michael Jackson Burial -- Sugar on Top

9/2/2009 2:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's burial will be in good taste -- right down to the delicious doughnuts.

Michael Jackson
Jackson's family had a minor obsession with the "Ricotta Doughnuts" from Market Restaurant in Stamford, CT -- and we've learned boxes of them will be shipped tonight for the service.

Here's the dessert's delectable description: Cinnamon-sugared doughnuts made with fresh ricotta, crushed amaretti cookies and a creme angalaise.

I'm all for comfort food, but flying in doughnuts from the east coast for this occasion? No wonder the cost of the funeral is so high. Is this just how celebrity life works? (or, how family-of-celebrity life works...)

On top of OLD KOOKY,
All covered with cheese,
I lost my poor meatball
When somebody sneezed.

Nice to see there will be an air of dignity and class to the event.
NOT. I mean, POSSIBLY, if these donuts were a fave of MJ, but no...the 'family' likes them and hey, the funeral is being paid for by the estate, so what the hell...let's fly in some doughnuts.

MICHAEL IS PAYING FOR 12 PLOTS AT FOREST LAWN..... WTF !?!?!?!

http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5h9a7kycTsBsS5YVilTVuapWmQ4JgD9AFAO4O0 (read the whole thing)

Quoting the AP:
"Few details about the service have been disclosed. Cohen said during the hearing that part of the reason it was...

****EMPHASIS HERE****
so expensive was because 12 burial spaces were being bought.
****EMPHASIS HERE****

Beckloff said normally, costs of a funeral would be paid by the estate after the service. But Jackson's family couldn't afford to pay the costs upfront and wait for reimbursement."

JACKSONS HAVE NOOOOO CLASS!!! Michael is now paying for them ALL to have famous plots! WTF!!!!

I guess so. Gotta admit, they sure sound tasty but I imagine (from my rather frugal viewpoint) this is going to be costly unless the Stamford Market folks donate 'em...or would that be dough-nate.

:P

They could have done without the donuts. Wonder how much that alone will cost. At least he is finally being laid to rest. May your soul be at peace now Michael.

I just checked the Market's website and the donuts are $8 each. No wonder they went to court for the money!
